Last Shot.

Sometimes its hard for me to stop photographing at a session.  I love what i do and get in that zone.  But eventually, i have to stop.  Even after i inform my clients we are finished, and the anticipation of seeing the final images is fresh in the air, my eye is still wandering.  I'm always looking around until my camera equipment is away and i'm basically forced to stop and leave.  It happens at almost every session. At this particular session we were finished.  But i had 1 shot left on my rz67.  1 B&W shot.  We walked back to where our cars were located and paused.  But being that i'm always looking around, i noticed a little trail around the side of the building.  And if you are a client or friend reading this, you know if i see something i immediately shout "wait."  This time was no different.  I had to check out this spot.  There was no way i could leave without doing so and i was rewarded right away.  But with 1 film shot i had get it right.  It wasn't a "digital" shot.  I waited, and waited - hoping they wouldn't blink - checked my settings about 15 times ... and fired.

While i had lots of favs for this session - which you will see soon - the last one definitely stands out in the crowd.

So in the future, don't hesitate.  Take that last shot.
